Tickets (CVB)


All hearings scheduled for March – September have been canceled due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 emergency and will be rescheduled. The Court is still formulating a plan to reschedule these matters. Once a final plan is in place, you will be notified.  Please make sure CVB (or your attorney, if you have one) has the best possible contact information for you.


Unless you pay the ticket, a hearing will automatically be set for you if you received a ticket on federal property.  You do not need to request one.
